MACON NEWS

Update: Matthew Davis, 27, was pronounced dead at 9:19 a.m. Friday at the Surgical Trauma ICU at the Medical Center, Navicent Health, according to Macon.com.

Gunfire erupted at a Macon, Georgia apartment complex late Wednesday night, June 26, 2019, leaving one young man dead, and two other people injured.  According to 13WMAZ.com, “the shooting happened just before midnight at [an apartment complex] on Log Cabin Drive.”  Macon.com is reporting, “Antwan Fuller, 20, was pronounced dead at the scene…Matthew Davis, 27, was taken to the Medical Center, Navicent Health, and was listed in critical condition. Mia Sanders, 34, was listed in stable condition at the hospital.”  Media reports indicate no suspects have been identified and the investigation is ongoing.  

41NBC.com reported on a shooting incident in this area in April 2017 and WGXA.tv reported on a shooting incident in April 2018.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Residents and guests of apartment complexes have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the apartment complex is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property, and, if so, were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect Antwan Fuller, Matthew Davis, Mia Sanders, and others at the time of the shooting?
  • Was the complex aware of any suspicious activity or suspicious people on property prior to the shooting?
  • How was the suspect able to gain access to the property?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the apartment complex owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, Antwan Fuller’s  family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss.  In addition, Matthew Davis and Mia Sanders may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their injuries.

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that Antwan Fuller’s family as well as Matthew Davis and Mia Sanders retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.
